Science in colonial India


Sanjib Bera

The present paper seeks to explore the paradigms of scientific development in colonial India. The history of colonial India during the eighteenth-nineteenth century spectacularly illustrate a close link between science and imperialism and my endeavor will be to underline the nature, course and significance of this link with the help of a little theoretical discussion to be substantiated by a few illustrative examples from certain scientific works. A history of science in India must also be a history of India, not merely a history of the projection of western science in India. Pre-colonial stage means Ancient and Medieval times was India’s own science, technology and medicine, themselves subjected to wide internal variation and different historical influence and cultural practice and the legacies these provided for the subsequent era of British rule.
